And I will take your bet.
Remember, it took a "special prosecutor" and somewhat of a "special judge" to get things to this point.
This case is about much more than T and Z. Now if an all white jury convicted Z, then it is hard to see riots happening. But I doubt that will happen.
Also, Pio keeps asking, can Z be convicted of a lessor charge? In this specific case and with this specific charge of course.
Do any of you lawyers know if this can happen given Florida's laws and this specific case and the charges. Will the Judges final juror instructions and the final negotiations between the defense and prosecution determine if a lessor verdict is possible. Or is this a case of conviction on the original charge or he walks?
